"Most villages in Bali perform a Melasti (or also know as Mekiyis) ritual cleansing of their communities anywhere between 4 to 2 days before Nyepi, the day of total silence. But not so far from Ubud, in the area encompassing Blahbatuh, Keramas , and surroundings, this ritual takes place after Nyepi, on the full moon of the tenth month – purnama kedasa – on Saba beach. Melasti involves everyone in the community, and the village deities Susuhunan are brought down too."
